12:02 pm
ukrainian forces since they began their so-called anti terror operation activists are claiming responsibility for the attack saying they brought the plane down using an anti aircraft missile antigovernment fight is a company blocking the airport and demanding that ukrainian troops leave the area meanwhile they also claim to have brought down a ukrainian bomber in don't yet carried out an attack there however is yet to confirm or deny this claim while five ukrainian border guards lost their lives following the attack on a convoy in the city of mariupol where ukrainian forces have been actively clamping down cracking down since friday but there has been a reaction here in kiev from people who claim russia for the downing of that plane police saying that around one hundred protesters have gathered near the russian embassy not far from here in kiev to express their anger they were carrying anti russia plant cards and shouting anti president clinton slogans now they threw eggs
12:03 pm
and paint at the building and also at the mats cars and also overturned vehicles and tires now police are saying standing by is the events unfolded failing to stop the protesters actions and incidentally president poroshenko has declared sunday a day of mourning in ukraine for all of those who have lost their lives the crew of soldiers aboard a cargo plane down in lugansk of the biggest single loss than the ukrainian army suffered since the start of the cracked foreign policy analysts says it might actually made the care government see reason that it could actually contribute to the calming of the world just the from expense because the way in which the ukrainian a party. over the recent weeks has been and will be extremely they obviously you. know i'm guided weapons wherever those who are close to the security and i think every case of a no fly zone in ukraine is not warranted then he was really.
12:04 pm
but political analyst alexander public believes key evidence allies would use this incident to further demands russia they're just going to blame russia will blame you for the past several weeks that this is supposed to be you know there's a collision on the part of russia i mean how these people managed to downplay i mean you know what moscow russia wants to be a crane has its own military industry but they're going to pin the blame on russia because the real target is russia it's not even the south east or the east of ukraine so i expect escalation from pearlie and otherwise from nato washington long brussels earlier fortunately. refugees fleeing the crisis in eastern ukraine claim the army won't let men leave the country he spoke to some of the ukrainian families split by the conflict so you
12:05 pm
can hear their stories later in the program when you visit a refugee camp in russia that's overflowing with women and children. ukraine's prime ministers ordered the government prepare for a hole to gas supplies on monday cares more than four billion dollars in debt right now and it's just days left to pay at least half of what it owes if that deadline is not met russia will start only delivering gas that's been paid for up front i spoke earlier to r.t. correspondent really about the deadlock. so are these latest gas price talks of collapse we seem to be back to square one who's holding it up is ukraine or is it russia was the picture all depends on who you ask for example ukraine says that russia's price is too high and moscow says that he has demands are simply absurd so let's have a look at the facts first starters ukraine admittedly owes billions of dollars to russia and gazprom has actually moved the deadline for payment back four times and now it's over seven rounds of negotiations person huge it here though that's still
12:06 pm
to be purged and we'll talk about what kind of strong opposition ukraine is in a moment but the economy is so at the moment how are they going to pay that all that is sure but remember that i.m.f. loan that ukraine has already gotten and that is actually enough to cover part of their debt and that the fact is russia is not even asking them to pay back in full at least half of what he votes and if they do there's a deal for that moscow well actually throw in a retroactive discount on what ukraine owes and that will save the country millions of desperately needs if war but to the present ukraine is saying this latest discovery that was all for the one that was on the table is just too hard it's not enough so when we go from here well here's a perspective on the gas price russia is offering three hundred eighty five dollars per thousand cubic meters which is already eight hundred dollars less than the current running price what's more is that russia has actually guaranteed that rate for a year regardless of whether market prices go up and as
12:07 pm
a matter of fact even europe's energy chief house called the offer very reasonable . i believe that three hundred eighty five dollars is a reduction that could be considered reasonable depending on the volume and length of the contract it could even be less than three hundred eighty five and that will then be the final price ok so we've heard what russia is prepared to do what shoe crain prepared to do we're going to compromise well it doesn't seem like ukraine is going to compromise almost anywhere in fact it has offered to. perri price of three hundred twenty six dollars until a permanent one is agreed upon and that is of course much less than what russia wants on top of that ukraine is refusing to pay back its existing debt until it gets the prize that it wants. we touched on this why does ukraine feel it's in such a strong position he wanted to be just and that is a very big question here and according to gas from c. all ukraine may be listening to third party advisors let's have a listen. i mean to do good in school can perhaps the ukrainians of outside
12:08 pm
advisors it's just that we've observed from the very beginning of the talks that the ukrainian side never really wanted any compromise or any deal. so who's alexey miller talking over there rather cryptically who are these advisors may be well it's still a bit of a speculation but we've asked that question to a number of experts and there seems to be a predominant view let's have a listen cramer is under instructions from the united states of america very very large industrial companies this is also another subtle way of controlling the europeans remember because when and if russia quite rightly stops delivering gas which isn't paid for of course like last time like the previous two times ukraine will simply siphon off that gas which will cause some problems in europe which will further encourage the europeans to be forced to eventually start buying american very expensive american gas as well that's all part of the business plan well any
12:09 pm
rift between russia and the e.u. is really good for america because it is desperate to start selling its own gas if you look at this map right there you can see that you're of gets thirty percent of its gas from russian federation and you're and ukraine is actually a major hub on that transport route from russia to europe and what america is desperate to do is to start selling its own gas but the problem is gas prices in europe right now are too low and i'm going to mean if you took all this out of the equation all this transit through ukraine how does that go to affect the price of gas it would go up what mitchell how absolutely and that is exactly what would make shipping all that gas for america to europe actually profitable and of the same time it would hit russia's economy to boot so america stands everything to gain and very little to lose. talking with sean archie dot com we got details of another gas battle being played out as well this time on the correct version the price is skyrocketing rocketing though the. wanted the as an even been specified delivery
12:10 pm
though is guaranteed fun of what we're talking about online. jadis in iraq are preparing to launch the political mechanisms through which they hope to turn the country into a radical islamist state according to reports they plan to form a new government in the city of mosul on sunday the capital of the region they captured earlier this week the fear is that baghdad will be next extremists from a sunni terrorist group known as isis have made no secret that the capital is the main target of an already entrenched themselves in the north of iraq hundreds of iraqi men have responded to a coat of arms issued on friday by the country's top shia cleric who urged the nation to join the fight against the radicals a government airstrike on the areas surrounding the country's biggest all refineries reportedly killed some two hundred terrorists that says the u.s. deliberate so what kind of assistance it could provide that is going to she can explain why. president obama's message to iraq is the u.s. will help it fight the militants but it will not put boots on the ground he said he
12:11 pm
would be reviewing a range of options in the coming days this could mean air strikes but the president has not made a decision yet he'll something decayed it that it's not up to the u.s. to solve iraq's problems we will not be sending u.s. troops back into combat in iraq but i have asked my national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support iraq security forces and i'll be reviewing those options in the days ahead we can't do it for them in the absence of this type of political effort short term military action including any assistance we might provide won't succeed. the sectarian war in iraq broke out after the u.s. invasion in two thousand and three and has been a source of constant violence ever since it is allowed to the militants with the islamic state of iraq and syria again to gain momentum and recruits the fight against assad in syria is further bolstered these militants and gave them new
12:12 pm
resources they are now in control of large parts of iraq including iraq's second largest city of mosul the goal of this militant group is to create a caliphate or an islamic state across a vast area that includes syria and iraq when taking over most heavily armed radicals overran police stations freed more than a thousand prisoners from the city jail and to go over the international airport iraqi forces apparently red in the face of leaving behind uniforms weapons and armored vehicles those could be weapons that the u.s. provided to the iraqi security forces that are now in the hands of these militants more than half a million people have fled seeking refuge the situation for most iraqis is dire and it has been so for years they were promised democracy but all they've seen is violence with no end in sight. you know dispense massive subsequent bring in training the iraqi army before pulling troops out of the country. side current
12:13 pm
events show this was a huge waste of money and effort. you have to go to the root of the problem the wood of the problem it was a u.s. invasion and occupation of iraq when the second largest city in iraq mosul fall into their hands that means that all this training all this equipping of the iraqi army and the iraqi security forces there the united states has done spending honey five billion dollars of taxpayers' money has really gone to waste that's with me there has to be a way to put the country back on track and that the key to that track is really the national reconciliation which is something that the united states when it was occupying bara power in iraq did not really think very seriously. breaking story of selective. the one time to talk about. the sexual violence and we talk about war crimes. weapons to the government to find out

12:16 pm

east of ukraine i look at those as they look well don't have to which is done when you leave home for awhile he usually want to come back but at some point you realize that you don't have anything to come back to there's no returning to a government which is trying to kill you and destroy all your belongings. lisa tries her best to look brave and says she's not scared for her life anymore but her worries are far from over i'm very worried about my father and brother the haven't led them out of the country they say they can come here and we're very scared for them yes i was promoted with your mobile one will receive awful wolf we were ready for anything someone could have easily thrown a bomb inside a bus during a bus ride we were told not to talk on the phone because someone could be listening and ready to drop bombs on us. nearly nine thousand refugees cross the border with russia in the last couple of days alone most have only one thought in mind the

12:22 pm
raped during almost thirty years of civil war human rights groups say sexual violation is still being used there is a torture method against suspect criminals but civilians are also at risk control and could too according to a un survey every ninety minutes one woman suffers a rape every day up to five children are abused and there's little or no punishment for the guilty mosco free art is going underground host as she returns you spoke to human rights advocate bianca jagger she's convinced the u.k. ignored violations because it was fueling the war by selling millions of dollars worth of weapons to the country. but i did some research and found reports about how the u.k. sent weapons that probably were used in the mass killing of the terminal at the end of the war and even before and it is believed that between seven between fifty to seventy thousand innocent civilians were killed among the tamil and it is a real persecution of the tamil even today and why is the u.k.
12:23 pm
government silent and of course they have something to answer because of the sale of weapons to that country and because sri lanka holds the presidency of the commonwealth in the one hand you talk about you know the sexual violence and you talk about war crimes and then you sell weapons to this government. just to zig two days into the world cup i'm a total months already thrown up a few surprises no more so than a smashing victory in the netherlands against world champions spain beating in five one but it's not just the football on the pitch this provide a view to time and there are plenty for the troops on the sidelines to is out is graham phillips has been falling out. to be the prime minister to be specially constructed on the edge of the city it wasn't for this walk up to that as it was you know stretches over several they cause would have caused the big screen as it was every day to tens of thousands of. years ago i mean the atmosphere i.
